Detection of occult lymph node metastases in esophageal cancer by minimally invasive staging combined with molecular diagnostic techniques. (1/1341)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Lymph node metastases are the most important prognostic factor in patients with esophageal cancer. Histologic examination misses micrometastases in up to 20% of lymph nodes evaluated. In addition, non-invasive imaging modalities are not sensitive enough to detect small lymph nodes metastases. The objective of this study was to investigate the use of reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) of messenger RNA (mRNA) for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) to increase the detection of micrometastases in lymph nodes from patients with esophageal cancer. METHODS: RT-PCR of CEA mRNA was performed in lymph nodes from patients with malignant and benign esophageal disease. Each specimen was examined histopathologically and by RT-PCR and the results were compared. RESULTS: Metastases were present in 29 of 60 (48%) lymph nodes sample by minimally invasive staging from 13 patients with esophageal cancer when examined histopathologically. RT-PCR identified nodal metastases in 46 of these 60 (77%) samples. RT-PCR detected CEA mRNA in all 29 histologically positive samples and in 17 histologically negative lymph nodes. All lymph nodes from patients with benign disease (n = 15) were negative both histopathologically and by RT-PCR. The stage of two patients was reclassified based on the RT-PCR results, which identified lymph node spread undetected histopathologically. Both of these patients developed recurrent disease after resection of the primary tumor. CONCLUSIONS: RT-PCR is more sensitive than histologic examination in the detection of lymph node metastases in esophageal cancer and can lead to diagnosis of a more advanced stage in some patients. The combination of minimally invasive surgical techniques in combination with new molecular diagnostic techniques may improve our ability to stage cancer patients.  (+info)

Minimally invasive aortic valve replacement through a transverse sternotomy: a word of caution. (2/1341)

OBJECTIVES: To compare aortic valve replacement (AVR) using a minimally invasive approach through a transverse sternotomy with the established approach of median sternotomy. DESIGN: Retrospective, case-control study. PATIENTS: Fourteen high risk patients (median age 78, Parsonnet score of 18%) who underwent AVR performed through a minimally invasive transverse sternotomy were compared with a historical group of patients matched for age, sex, and Parsonnet score who underwent AVR performed through a median sternotomy by the same surgeon. OUTCOME MEASURES: Cross clamp time, total bypass time, intensive care stay, postoperative in-hospital stay, morbidity, and mortality. RESULTS: There were two deaths in the minimally invasive group and none in the control group (NS). The cross clamp and total bypass times were longer in the minimally invasive group (67 and 92 minutes v 46 and 66 minutes, p < 0.001). There was a higher incidence of re-exploration for bleeding (14% v 0%) and paravalvar leaks (21% v 0%) in the minimally invasive group but these differences were not significant. The minimally invasive group had a longer postoperative in-hospital stay (p = 0.025). The incidence of mortality or major morbidity was 43% (six of 14) in the minimally invasive group and 7% (one of 14) in the matched pairs (p = 0.013). CONCLUSIONS: AVR can be performed through a transverse sternotomy but the operation takes longer and there is an unacceptably high incidence of morbidity and mortality.  (+info)

Video-assisted crossover iliofemoral obturator bypass grafting: a minimally invasive approach to extra-anatomic lower limb revascularization. (3/1341)

Graft infection continues to be one of the most feared complications in vascular surgery. It can lead to disruption of anastomoses with life-threatening bleeding, thrombosis of the bypass graft, and systemic septic manifestations. One method to ensure adequate limb perfusion after removal of an infected aortofemoral graft is extra-anatomical bypass grafting. We used a minimally invasive, video-assisted approach to implant a crossover iliofemoral obturator bypass graft in a patient with infection of the left limb of an aortofemoral bifurcated graft. This appears to be the first case report describing the use of this technique.  (+info)

Testicular sperm extraction: microdissection improves sperm yield with minimal tissue excision. (4/1341)

Testicular sperm extraction (TESE) is often an effective method for sperm retrieval from men with non-obstructive azoospermia. However, TESE has been a blind procedure that does not identify the focal sperm-producing areas of the testicle until after tissue has been excised from the patient. Experience with a new technique of microdissection of testicular tubules is presented here that identifies sperm-containing regions before their removal. Identification of spermatogenically active regions of the testicle is possible by direct examination of the individual seminiferous tubules. The underlying concept for this technique is simple: seminiferous tubules containing many developing germ cells, rather than Sertoli cells alone, are likely to be larger and more opaque than tubules without sperm production. In a sequential series of TESE cases for men with non-obstructive azoospermia, the ability to find spermatozoa increased from 45% (10/22) to 63% (17/27) after introduction of the microdissection technique. Microdissected samples yielded an average of 160,000 spermatozoa per sample in only 9.4 mg of tissue, whereas only 64,000 spermatozoa were found in standard biopsy samples that averaged 720 mg in weight (P < 0.05 for all comparisons). For men where microdissection was attempted, successful identification of enlarged tubules was possible in 56% (15/27) of cases. However, spermatozoa were retrieved with microdissection TESE for six men in whom sperm retrieval was unsuccessful with standard TESE approaches (35% of all men with spermatozoa retrieved). These findings suggest that microdissection TESE can improve sperm retrieval for men with non-obstructive azoospermia over that achieved with previously described biopsy techniques.  (+info)

Minimally invasive coronary surgery in women. (5/1341)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the minimally invasive surgery in coronary artery bypass grafting and the feasibility for revascularization of triple vessel coronary artery disease. METHODS: Nine female patients, aged 49.1 to 81.6 years (mean 64.3), were operated on for triple vessel disease through minimally invasive surgical techniques. The surgeries were performed through limited left parasternal incision under femorofemoral extracorporeal circulation. The myocardium was protected by antegrade infusion of cold blood cardioplegic solution while the aorta was cross-clamped. Under direct vision, the left saphenous vein grafts were connected sequentially to the diagonal branch, obtuse marginal branch and posterior descending branch, and the left internal thoracic arterial graft was anastomosed to the left anterior descending artery in each patient. RESULTS: The number of distal anastomoses was 3 to 4 with a mean of 3.7. The aortic crossclamp time was 52 to 130 minutes (82 +/- 25 minutes). The duration of extracorporeal circulation was 78 to 151 minutes (115 +/- 29 minutes). The postoperative course was uneventful in all patients. The postoperative length of stay was 4 to 12 days (7.2 +/- 2.0 days). Follow-up (4.2 to 8.7 months, mean 6.4) was complete in all patients and there were no late deaths or angina. Coronary angiography of 2 patients showed patent grafts. All patients were satisfied with the good cosmetic healing of the incision. CONCLUSION: Our experience demonstrates that minimally invasive surgery in coronary artery bypass grafting is technically feasible and may be an alternative approach in surgical revascularization of triple vessel coronary artery disease, especially in female patients.  (+info)

Bilirubin as an anti-oxidant for surgical stress: a preliminary report of bilirubin oxidative metabolites. (6/1341)

BACKGROUND: Bilirubin has been recognized as an anti-oxidant. The purpose of this study was to examine whether bilirubin would act as an antioxidant for surgical stress in humans. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Serum bilirubin and urinary bilirubin oxidative metabolites (BOM) were measured in 96 patients who underwent surgery. The antioxidant activity of bilirubin was assessed using BOM measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay with an anti-bilirubin monoclonal antibody. RESULTS: Serum bilirubin levels increased after surgery in all 96 patients (p < 0.01), but did not correlate with operation time or blood loss (p = 0.53 and p = 0.28, respectively). BOM increased only in patients with major surgeries (p = 0.048). Significant correlations between BOM and operation time and blood loss were found (p < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Bilirubin appears to act as an antioxidant for invasive surgery in humans. Urinary BOM could be a reliable marker for the degree of surgical stress.  (+info)

Repair of type IV thoracoabdominal aneurysm with a combined endovascular and surgical approach. (7/1341)

We report an unusual case of type IV Thoracoabdominal Aneurysm (TAA) with Superior Mesenteric Artery (SMA), celiac artery, and bilateral renal artery aneurysms in a patient who underwent an earlier repair of two infrarenal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) ruptures. Because of the presence of the visceral artery aneurysms and the earlier operation through the retroperitoneum, standard surgical treatment via a retroperitoneal approach with an inclusion grafting technique was considered difficult. A combined surgical approach achieving retrograde perfusion of all four visceral vessels and endovascular grafting allowing exclusion of the TAA was accomplished. Complete exclusion of the aneurysm and normal perfusion of the patient's viscera was documented by means of follow-up examinations at 3 and 6 months. The repair of a type IV TAA with a Combined Endovascular and Surgical Approach (CESA) allowed us to manage both the aortic and visceral aneurysms without thoracotomy or re-do retroperitoneal exposure and minimized visceral ischemia time. If the durability of this approach is confirmed, it may represent an attractive alternative in patients with aneurysmal involvement of the visceral segment of the aorta.  (+info)

Minimally invasive surgery for achalasia: an 8-year experience with 168 patients. (8/1341)

BACKGROUND: Seven years ago, the authors reported on the feasibility and short-term results of minimally invasive surgical methods to treat esophageal achalasia. In this report, they describe the evolution of the surgical technique and the clinical results in a large group of patients with long follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between January 1991 and October 1998, 168 patients (96 men, 72 women; mean age 45 years, median duration of symptoms 48 months), who fulfilled the clinical, radiographic, endoscopic, and manometric criteria for a diagnosis of achalasia, underwent esophagomyotomy by minimally invasive techniques. Forty-eight patients had marked esophageal dilatation (diameter >6.0 cm). Thirty-five patients had a left thoracoscopic myotomy, and 133 patients had a laparoscopic myotomy plus a partial fundoplication. Follow-up to October 1998 was complete in 145 patients (86%). RESULTS: Median hospital stay was 72 hours for the thoracoscopic group and 48 hours for the laparoscopic group. Eight patients required a second operation for recurrent or persistent dysphagia, and two patients required an esophagectomy. There were no deaths. Good or excellent relief of dysphagia was obtained in 90% of patients (85% after thoracoscopic and 93% after laparoscopic myotomy). Gastroesophageal reflux developed in 60% of tested patients after thoracoscopic myotomy and in 17% after laparoscopic myotomy plus fundoplication. Laparoscopic myotomy plus fundoplication corrected reflux present before surgery in five of seven patients. Patients with a dilated esophagus had excellent relief of dysphagia after laparoscopic myotomy; none required an esophagectomy. CONCLUSIONS: Minimally invasive techniques provided effective and long-lasting relief of dysphagia in patients with achalasia. The authors prefer the laparoscopic approach for three reasons: it more effectively relieved dysphagia, it was associated with a shorter hospital stay, and it was associated with less postoperative reflux. Laparoscopic Heller myotomy and partial fundoplication should be considered the primary treatment for esophageal achalasia.  (+info)

Why is the doctor performing this surgery?. To bypass, or go around, the obstruction caused by a coronary (heart) artery filled with a clot or with plaque (atherosclerosis). If the obstruction is not bypassed, the heart muscle beyond the obstruction is denied oxygen and nutrients. It differs from traditional coronary artery bypass surgery because it is a less invasive procedure, using smaller incisions to improve stability and to speed recovery, and does not require the use of a heart-lung machine.. What is the surgery?. Minimally Invasive Direct Coronary Artery Bypass is known as MID-CAB. Minimally invasive means that the surgeon accesses the heart with less trauma, and thru a smaller incision, than traditional bypass surgery. Most often, the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery will be bypassed, using the left internal mammary artery (LIMA) as the bypass graft. The steps are:. ...

Since the introduction of minimal access surgery to general surgeons in the 1980s, pediatric surgeons have been employing this innovative technology to perform surgery on children. Video technology and miniaturized instruments have brought the laboratory to the operating room; in many cases several small incisions are the only access necessary to perform complicated procedures that would otherwise require a large wound. Additional benefits of minimal access surgery may include reduced postoperative analgesic requirements, shortened length of stay, and faster resumption of normal activities. Increased operative costs offset some of these gains. The pediatric surgical community has embraced minimal access techniques for some operations; others remain controversial. ...

S2206 HCPCS code descriptors - Minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass surgery involving mini-thoracotomy or mini-sternotomy surgery, performed under direct vision;
Despite extensive soft tissue reduction, the most common complications associated with Baha implants are related to adverse skin reactions around the abutment. The reduction of the skin also adds complexity to the surgical procedure that is otherwise a routine type of skin incision. A less invasive surgical technique avoiding reducing the thickness of the skin would render a simpler and shorter procedure and would be aesthetically appealing to the patients, as permanent hair removal in the area around the abutment would not be required. Faster healing and less numbness (sensory loss/ paraesthesia) at the implant site may also be expected if the soft tissue thickness is left intact.. The Cochlea Baha BA300 Abutment together with a surgical procedure that includes soft tissue reduction was CE marked in April 2010. The test abutment, Cochlear Baha BA400, together with a surgical procedure that does not require soft tissue reduction was CE marked in June 2012.. The rationale behind this ...

Matias Bruzoni, MD, Craig T. Albanese, MD, MBA INTRODUCTION Minimal access surgery (MAS) in the pediatric population has progressed immensely over the last 20 years, and more than 80% of the pediatric surgeons in North America are now performing laparoscopic and thoracoscopic procedures.1 Smaller and more precise technology has helped surgeons adapt to the limited space that the small patients chest and abdomen offer. However, these techniques require new and different skills that are not free of errors or complications. The main difficulties surgeons face when performing MAS are more pronounced when operating in smaller spaces. These inherent limitations include 2-dimensional images; minimal haptic feedback (direct touch); operating at a distance with very thin instruments; motion parallax and poor ergonomics, such as limitations in directional movement and mobility of the instrumentation. The safety of minimally invasive surgery in children has raised much concern and yielded multiple studies.
Minimal access surgery is completed with one or more small incisions instead of a large incision. The surgeon passes a telescope with a video camera through a small incision (usually only 1/4 long) into a body cavity. The surgeon then views the surgery on a TV monitor. Surgical instruments are then passed through other similar little incisions. The surgeon examines and operates on the area in question by viewing magnified images on a television. When the telescope is used to operate on the abdomen, the procedure is called laparoscopy.
BACKGROUND This study reports our 28 months experience with minimal access surgery (MAS) in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a review of all children who underwent MAS between December 2004 and March 2007 at the Departments of Paediatric Surgery, Seth Gordhandas Sunderdas Medical College (GSMC) and King Edward the VII Memorial (KEM) Hospital, India. Results and observations were tabulated and analysed, comparing with observations by various other authors regarding variety of indications such as, operative time, hospital stay, conversion rate, complications, safety, and feasibility of MAS in neonates, in the appropriate operative groups. RESULTS A total of 199 procedures were performed in 193 children aged between 10 days and 12 years (average age: 5.7 years). One case of each, adrenal mass, retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomy, laparoscopic congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) repair, and abdominoperineal pull-through for anorectal malformation, were converted to open surgeries due to technical

Coronary artery disease remains the leading cause of death in developed countries. Major recent studies such as SYNTAX and FREEDOM have confirmed that coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) remains the gold standard treatment in terms of survival and freedom from myocardial infarction and the need for repeat revascularization. The current review explores the use of new technologies and future directions in coronary artery surgery, through 1) stressing the importance of multiple arterial conduits and especially the use of bilateral mammary artery; 2) discussing the advantages and disadvantages of off-pump coronary artery bypass; 3) presenting additional techniques, e.g. minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass grafting, hybrid, and robotic-assisted CABG; and, finally, 4) debating a novel external stenting technique for saphenous vein grafts.

In recent years many patients have been treated with minimally invasive total hip replacements. The primary difference between minimally invasive and conventional approaches is how the surgeon exposes and gains access to the hip joint. With the traditional approach, the incision is 10-16 inches long, whereas minimally invasive incisions are one incision about 6 inches long or two small incisions about 3-4 inches long; one incision is over the groin for placement of the acetabular component (socket) and one is over the buttock for placement of the femoral component (ball). To make the two incisions your surgeon made need the help of an xray. Also, the minimally invasive approach involves splitting and dividing muscles instead of cutting them. Minimally invasive joint replacement is therefore less traumatic, promotes better healing and the joint regains stability more quickly. There is less blood loss and the patient can sometimes go home the same day. Minimally invasive surgery can take longer ...

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, also known as MICS CABG (Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery/Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting) or The McGinn Technique is heart surgery performed through several small incisions instead of the traditional open-heart surgery that requires a median sternotomy approach. MICS CABG is a beating-heart multi-vessel procedure performed under direct vision through an anterolateral mini-thoracotomy. Advantages of Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery are less blood loss, reduced post-operative discomfort, faster healing times and lowered risk of infections, as well as eliminating the possibility for deep sternal wound infection or sternal non-union. This procedure makes heart surgery possible for patients who were previously considered too high risk for traditional surgery due to age or medical history. Patients referred for this procedure may have Coronary Artery Disease (CAD); aortic, mitral or tricuspid valve diseases; or previous unsuccessful stenting. MICS CABG is ...
What is minimally invasive cardiac surgery?. Most cardiac operations today are performed through a sternotomy, which involves splitting the entire breastbone. Minimally invasive cardiac surgery encompasses a variety of operations performed through incisions that are substantially smaller and less traumatic than the standard sternotomy. Minimally invasive incisions measure about 3 to 4 inches compared to 8 to 10 sternotomy incisions. Specialized handheld and robotic instruments are used to project the dexterity of the surgeons hands through these small incisions in performing the operations. ...

Heart surgery is common throughout the world with over 700,000 heart surgeries performed each year. Of those, 250,000 are heart valve repair or replacement surgeries. Traditionally, valve repair and replacement is completed by separating the chest bone and accessing the valve through an opening in the chest wall with a vertical incision running approximately 8-10 inches long. However, over the past two decades, through advances in medicine and patient demand, small incision surgery, sometimes referred to as minimal access surgery is now commonly being used to repair or replace heart valves with as little as a 3-4 inch surgical incision between the ribs.. There are four heart valves that control the flow of blood through a heart. They are called the aortic, mitral, pulmonary and tricuspid valves. The aortic and mitral valves are the two most common valves requiring surgical intervention. Heart valve disease occurs when one or more of the four heart valves is not fully doing its job, and causes ...

Limited access or minimally invasive coronary artery surgery is being evaluated in numerous North American medical centers. The purposes of this report are to (1) describe the techniques, (2) examine progress in this new field, (3) comment on the potential of these approaches, and (4) put into perspective the expected goals of minimally invasive coronary surgery, given the proven long-term results achieved with traditional techniques (sternotomy and cardiopulmonary bypass).. Minimally invasive coronary artery bypass is performed using one of two approaches: (1) a series of small holes or ports in the chest (referred to as PACAB, PortCAB, or port-access coronary artery bypass) or (2) a combination of ports and a small incision directly over the coronary artery to be bypassed (referred to as MIDCAB or minimally invasive coronary artery bypass). As in standard coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG), anesthesia is required.. PACAB is currently used only by investigators at a few university ...
Background:Minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) involves scan-directed removal of a single adenoma through a 2·0-cm mini-incision without intraoperative monitoring. The aim of this study was to analyse the outcomes of MIP using such a simplified technique.Methods:The study group comprised 500 consecutive patients undergoing MIP via a lateral mini-incision from August 2000 to September 2005. Levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) were measured after operation solely to aid informed discharge.Results:Some 97·4 per cent of patients were initially cured by MIP. Eight patients remained hypercalcaemic and a further five were normocalcaemic on the day after surgery but became hypercalcaemic again within 3 months of the procedure. Eleven of these patients were cured with subsequent re-exploration. Analysis of postoperative PTH data indicated that, at best, the use of intraoperative PTH measurement during surgery would have increased the cure rate by only a further 1 per cent.

Harry Kellar, 52, of Cutler, Ohio, father of four, coach of his sons junior high football team, and machine maintenance planner at Kraton Polymers, felt fine. His older sons high school football team was hosting an ice cream social at the firehouse, and Kellar stopped by the blood pressure booth for a quick check.. A handful of doctors appointments and referrals later, Kellar found out that an artery in his heart was 100 percent blocked. He needed a coronary artery bypass. Kellar had watched his fathers long recovery from traditional bypass surgery, in which the breastbone is split and the ribcage separated in order to access the heart. He wanted to avoid that experience if at all possible.. Fortunately, just two hours away, the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute offers minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass. With the aid of a surgical robot, the entire procedure can be performed through a few small incisions between the ribs on the left side.. Most cardiac surgery is done through a ...
Single-port laparoscopy (SPL) was developed approximately 30 years ago in minimally invasive surgery. Literature comparing SPL with conventional laparoscopy (CL) for adnexal surgery (i.e., cystectomy and adnexectomy) is inconsistent. The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate the advantage of SPL over CL for adnexal surgery. PubMed, Embase, and MEDLINE were searched for publications in English and in French published between 1975 and November 2015 using the following key words: (((single port) or (single site) or (one port) or (single-port access laparoscopy) or (single-site laparoscopy) or (laparoscopic single-site surgery)) and ((adnexal disease) or (ovarian cystectomy) or (ovariectomy) or (adnexectomy))) not (pregnancy ...

INTRODUCTION : Laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) is an accepted procedure for elective splenectomy. Advancement in technology has extended the possibility of LS in massive splenomegaly [Choy et al., J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 14(4), 197-200 (2004)], trauma [Ren et al., Surg Endosc 15(3), 324 (2001); Mostafa et al., Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech 12(4), 283-286 (2002)], and cirrhosis with portal hypertension [Hashizume et al., Hepatogastroenterology 49(45), 847-852 (2002)]. In a developing country, these advanced gadgets may not be always available. We performed LS using conventional and reusable instruments in a public teaching the hospital without the use of the advanced technology. The technique of LS and the outcome in these patients is reported. MATERIALS AND METHODS : Patients undergoing LS for various hematological disorders from 1998 to 2004 were included. Electrocoagulation, clips, and intracorporeal knotting were the techniques used for tackling short-gastric vessels and splenic ...

An increasing proportion of patients requiring treatment for malignancy are elderly, which has created new challenges for oncologic surgeons. Aging is associated with an increasing prevalence of frailty and comorbidities that may affect the outcome of surgical procedures. By decreasing complications and shortening length of hospital stay without affecting oncologic safety, surgery performed using the robot, rather than traditional laparotomy, improves the chances of a better outcome in our growing elderly populations. In addition to age, surgeons should take into account factors, such as frailty and comorbidities that correlate with outcome

The purpose of this prospective cohort study was to clarify the safety and efficacy of total hip arthroplasty via the direct anterior approach in the supine position with a novel mobile traction table. The first experience of consecutive surgeries by a single surgeon using the direct anterior approach with a traction table is described with a two-year follow-up period. Of 121 patients, 100 patients without previous hip surgeries, severe deformity, or cemented implants were divided into two groups comprising the first 50 patients and the second 50 patients. The implant survival rate was 99% at the two-year follow-up. Revision surgery was required for periprosthetic femoral fracture in one patient. The complication rate possibly related to the traction table was 5% (5 patients): three anterior dislocations, one periprosthetic femoral fracture, and one intraoperative perforation caused by femoral rasping. The complication rate tended to decrease in the second group compared to the first group (4% versus 6%

What is Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)? MIS is surgery typically performed through small incisions, or operating ports, rather than large incisions, resulting in potentially shorter recovery times, fewer complications, reduced hospitalization costs and reduced trauma to the patient.. The TRMC Surgery Center offers a host of advanced, minimally-invasive procedures that utilize a telescope-like instrument which is inserted in a small incision called a laparoscope, endoscope or arthroscope. The scope is connected to a tiny video camera, which projects a view of the operative site on video monitors in the operating room. The surgeon observes the video monitors to guide precision surgical instruments through another small incision to perform the operation.. The TRMC Surgery Center also offers the revolutionary da Vinci robotic surgery system, a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeons minimally-invasive capabilities. With da Vinci, small incisions are used to introduce ...

In 2015, approximately 70% of lung surgeries at Stanford were performed with a VATS minimally invasive technique.. Patients with esophageal cancer often get minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) rather than laparotomy or thoracotomy. In 2015, more than 80% of esophageal surgeries at Stanford utilized minimally invasive surgical techniques.. To avoid median sternotomy, Stanford doctors often use VATS, robotic surgery, or laparoscopy to treat conditions such as paralyzed diaphragms, hiatal hernias, reflux disease, achalasia or other conditions of the mediastinum.. Stanford thoracic surgeons have specialized training and experience with all minimally invasive thoracic surgical procedures, as well as with traditional open procedures. They have published many scientific studies critically investigating the performance and effectiveness of minimally invasive approaches. They also have extensive experience in teaching other surgeons these techniques in courses at the local, national, and international ...
Drexel surgeons are experienced in all types of minimally invasive surgical techniques including laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery, and single incision laparoscopic surgery.
Coronary artery bypass graft surgery CABG is a surgical procedure that improves blood flow to the heart for patients with blocked coronary arteries. Robotic CABG is a relatively new minimally invasive surgical technique. It is a less invasive alternative to conventional open heart surgery where the breastbone, or sternum, is sawn in half. It uses surgical instruments and a camera attached to the arms of a robotic machine, which are controlled by the heart surgeon via a computer console.. This minimally invasive technique enables very precise control of the surgical instruments over a wide range of motion through small cuts on the side of the chest. Robotic CABG surgery has been performed by specialized heart surgeons in selected institutions over the last 15 years. Whether a patient is suitable for robotic CABG or a conventional technique such as open surgery depends on several factors. These include the severity and anatomy of coronary artery disease, previous surgical procedures, other medical ...
Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive spinal procedure that involves an injection of bone cement through a small hole in the skin into a fractured vertebra. It is a type of vertebral augmentation surgery. Watch: Vertebroplasty Interactive Video.. The goals of the vertebroplasty surgical procedure are to stabilize the spinal fracture and to stop the pain caused by the fracture. Vertebroplasty is considered a minimally invasive surgical procedure because the procedure is done through a small puncture in the patients skin (as opposed to an open incision). A typical vertebroplasty procedure, described below, usually takes about 1 hour to complete.. ...

Minimally invasive surgery is the new paradigm in the field of surgery, and Montefiore is the first academic medical centre in the New York region to offer a formalised training programme for all surgical residents, stated T.S. Ravikumar, M.D., chairman of the Department of Surgery. It is anticipated that this modern centre, in addition to training Montefiore residents in a variety of minimally invasive surgical procedures, including laparoscopic, arthroscopic and other endoscopic interventions, will quickly become a regional centre for practising surgeons to learn new and advanced skills.. In the past ten years, minimally invasive surgery has replaced open surgery for many general procedures, such as gall bladder, knee and shoulder surgery, and is being used increasingly for more complex procedures in gynaecological, cardiac and urological surgery. Laparoscopic surgery requires learning entirely new skill sets, explained Alan White, M.D., the director of MIMIS. First, the surgeon must ...
Minimally invasive spinal surgery, or MISS for short, is a surgical method used to treat a variety of spinal disorders. It is characterized not only by the use of a smaller incision than in conventional open spinal surgery, but also by the use of advanced technology and innovative techniques. According to our Florida orthopedic specialists, the main goal of MISS is to minimize muscle and soft tissue damage caused by the surgery while accomplishing results equivalent to those of conventional open spinal surgery.. During MISS, a number of different techniques can be used depending on the condition being treated. In general, a tubular access approach is utilized. By using a tubular retractor, the force on the muscles around the incision is divided more equally than during open surgery, thus creating less localized pressure and reducing the risk of muscle and soft tissue damage. In some cases, MISS may be performed using endoscopy, which involves a tiny video camera guiding the orthopedic surgeon by ...
Background: Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) is a very successful therapy for patients with severe hip osteoarthritis. The clinical and functional results have been well documented in the past for the conventional methods. So far there is no study that investigated the relationship between body-mass-index (BMI) and sex and the clinical and radiological outcome after minimally invasive THA. The aim of this work is to analyse the reproducibility of the radiological results with minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty in relation of BMI and sex. Methods: 48 patients received THA (femoral stem: CLS; acetabular cup: Triology; both Zimmer, Warsaw, USA) through a minimally invasive anterolateral approach. The clinical and functional results before and after surgery were recorded and analysed. The reproducibility of the surgical results was messured by standardized radiography. Subsequently, these results were evaluated for dependencies of sex and BMI. Results: BMI positively correlated with the duration ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Recent advances in plastic stents. T2 - A comprehensive review. AU - Bink, Nienke. AU - Mohan, Velram Balaji. AU - Fakirov, Stoyko. N1 - Taylor & Francis deal. PY - 2019/11/7. Y1 - 2019/11/7. N2 - Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are globally the number one cause of death reported by the World Health Organization. A relevant CVD is coronary artery disease (CAD) in which a layer of plaque is formed on the interior of the coronary arteries which limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood through the body and specifically to the heart. A well-known but invasive surgical technique to manage CAD is bypass surgery. A minimally invasive technique is the implantation of stents. Nowadays, the aim is to use biodegradable plastics as a stent material instead of metals. These plastic stents are to disappear after the blood vessel has healed. The biggest challenge is to match the mechanical requirements while still being deliverable and suitable to be inside human blood vessels for the total healing ...
A typical laparoscopic gall bladder removal procedure requires placement of a rigid laparoscope through a 1.5-2.5 cm incision in the umbilicus and then 2-3 additional 0.5 cm incisions for additional instrumentation. While post-operative complication rates for this procedure are small, wound infection, particularly of the large incision, is one of the most common post-operative complications. There is also a risk of a post-operative hernia at these incision sites.. A less invasive surgical technique that reduces the size or number of laparoscopic incisions offers the potential clinical benefits of eliminating wound infections, hernias and decreasing post-operative pain following laparoscopic gall bladder removal. ...

Total hip arthroplasty, which is the replacement of a painful joint that has been destroyed, constitutes the operation of the century. It was first presented in the early 1960s by Sir John Charnley, in a presentation for the treatment of osteoarthritic joints in elderly patients, and showed very positive results. Nowadays, young patients ask for total hip replacements, hoping to improve their quality of life and return to their normal, everyday activities.. The progress in biomedical technology has led to the development of novel techniques and prostheses, as well as in the selective use of cement, depending on the case. The use of new and enhanced materials and plans for implantation results in a lower friction coefficient, allowing for greater loads, better movement and increased stability. The development of minimally invasive surgical techniques (MIS) limits possible damage of soft tissue, leading to an accelerated recovery, without compromised long term results (hopefully). Computer ...

As of 2003, there are about 3,700 ambulatory surgical centers in the United States, compared with 275 in 1980 and 1,450 in 1990. This rapid increase reflects a general trend toward surgeries performed on an outpatient basis. According to American Medical News , 70% of all surgical procedures performed in the United States in 2000 were done in outpatient facilities, compared to 15% in 1980. As of 2003, over seven million surgeries are performed annually in American ASCs. Between 1990 and 2000, the number of operations performed annually in these centers rose 191%, from 2.3 million procedures in 1990 to 6.7 million in 2000. The types of surgical procedures performed in ASCs have also undergone significant changes in recent years. Many of the early ASCs were outpatient centers for plastic surgery. Advances in minimally invasive surgical techniques in other specialties, however, led to the establishment of ASCs for orthopedic, dental, and ophthalmologic procedures. According to the Federated ...
Colon and Rectal Surgery is the division of medicine concerned with surgery performed on the intestinal tract, pelvic wall, sacrum, rectum, anus and perianal areas. The Colon and Rectal surgeons of the Oregon Clinic use sophisticated, minimally invasive surgical techniques, including robotic-assisted rectal surgery, to treat a wide range of colorectal problems from removing cancerous growths to treating inflammatory bowel disease. Colon surgery is recommended to remove tumors, large or hard to reach polyps or diverticula that are causing severe symptoms. In some cases, surgery is necessary to determine whether a growth is cancerous. The surgical procedure recommended depends upon the extent of tumor involvement and the location of the cancer. For example, some rectal cancers are very small and limited to the surface of the rectal lining. Other cancers have grown through the entire rectal wall and are adherent (stuck) to nearby structures and organs, such as the abdominal or pelvic wall, the ...

Doctors at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis are performing a new procedure to treat atrial fibrillation, a common irregular heartbeat.. Available at only a handful of U.S. medical centers, this hybrid procedure combines minimally invasive surgical techniques with the latest advances in catheter ablation, a technique that applies scars to the hearts inner surface to block signals causing the heart to misfire. The two-pronged approach gives doctors access to both the inside and outside of the heart at the same time, helping to more completely block the erratic electrical signals that cause atrial fibrillation.. Atrial fibrillation affects more than 2 million Americans, a number that continues to increase as the population ages. While not fatal in itself, patients who suffer from atrial fibrillation are at increased risk of stroke and congestive heart failure. And many, especially those who feel the fibrillations, have shortness of breath, chest pain, fatigue and feelings of ...
